TF1 dances with Saura’s ‘Fados’

Latido sells 'Suicide'

MADRID  — Leading French media group TF1 has inked with Spanish sales agent Latido Films for all French rights to Carlos Saura’s Portuguese song and dance pic “Fados.”

Produced by Antonio Saura’s Zebra Prods. and Luis Galvao Teles’ Lisbon-based banner Fado Filmes, “Fados” is Saura’s eighth music-themed film.

Deal was closed at Cannes, where Latido also pre-sold “Fados” to Holland’s ABC, Canada’s K Amerique, and Brazil’s Europa Cines.

Venezuela’s Amazonia also took Saura’s upcoming pic as part of a package that also included Roberto Santiago’s “The Suicide’s Club.” Benelux rights for “Suicide” have been taken by Brunbro.

At Cannes, Portugal’s Cinema Novo acquired an eight-film package from Latido, led by Tristan Bauer’s war drama “Blessed by Fire,” Korea’s M&FC bought Miguelanxo Prado’s animated art movie “De Profundis.”

Mexican distributor Quality Films also bought Colombian B.O. smash hit “Sonar no cuesta nada” (A Ton of Luck).

“It was a good Cannes, despite the welter of quality films,” Massimo Saidel, Latido’s general manager, told Daily Variety. Coinciding with the second Madrid de Cine-Spanish Film Screenings, running June 10-12, sales consortium Latido has added a new title to its sales line up: Catalan auteur Ventura Pons’ “Barcelona, un mapa,” (Barcelona, A Map).

The drama toplines Spanish theater muse Nuria Espert and Josep Maria Pou (“The Sea Inside”). Now in post, “Barcelona” marks Pons’ return to gay-themed filmmaking.
